Who should read this book?
If you care about markup, you’re in for a treat because we focus on how to use the new semantic elements contained within HTML5 right now. We also cover microformats and WAI-ARIA landmark roles, looking at how they’ll reduce your reliance on presentational elements and attributes, as well as making your websites and applications more useful without doing anything more than writing HTML.
If you’re a designer who wants to learn the creative opportunities offered by CSS3, this book will teach you how to use CSS3 in browsers that support its new properties, and offers a fresh perspective on how to handle older, less capable browsers.
